BOISE, Idaho — Bogus Basin announced it has signed a multiple year sponsorship agreement with Idaho Central Credit Union. Sponsorship funds are being used toward enhancements at the nonprofit recreation area, including the acquisition of two passenger shuttles and a large digital signboard that will provide dynamic information on grooming and chairlift status.
The plaza located outside of Bogus Basin’s JR Simplot Lodge is being renamed “Idaho Central Credit Union Plaza.” The 17,000 square foot plaza, which features a seating area, fireplaces, landscaping, and the Double R Ranch BBQ Smokehouse, was completed last year and serves as a base area gathering place.
The airport style buses will provide welcome upgrades to Bogus Basin’s transportation offerings for employees and guests. One of the buses will be a mountain parking lot shuttle, transporting guests and their gear to the JR Simplot Lodge. The second 24+ passenger bus will travel between the mountain and Bogus Basin’s new Fort Boise Park & Ride Lot.
Officials at Bogus Basin and Idaho Central Credit Union have been discussing terms for the agreement over the past several months and are enthusiastic about the positive impact that the partnership will have on Bogus Basin and the community.
“The ongoing generosity and support of individuals and organizations in our community is allowing us to continue to improve the overall the experience at Bogus Basin. It is a privilege for us to partner with organizations like Idaho Central Credit Union that are committed to giving back to the communities they serve by helping to make them a better place to live, work, and play," said Brad Wilson, General Manager, Bogus Basin
